Thanks for all the tips. I did read online that using Southern yellow pine would be best because of the excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Finding it might be problem. One ladder I want to make would only be 8 ft tall… not too far to fall if it breaks. ;-)

What if I used 2×4 for the rails and pipe for the steps? Any thought on that?
